This is a great deal. I had a nice experience on this tour with my parents. The tour was well managed by our guide Jayant Huang. The bus was comfortable and the hotel was quite nice as well. Many attractions were covered in a timely manner.

We were absolutely surprised at the deal we got. We were a group of three friends on our first ever trip to NYC. When we checked online, we got to know that GoldenBus Tours was offering three places on their tour for the price of two; which meant for just $152 we were able to see NYC, Philadelphia, Liberty Bell, White House and a lot of significant other sites in two days only. GoldenBus Tours has made loyal customers of us because of its affordability and quality of service.

I went on this trip with my wife and 2 daughters and we had a delightful time. The trip was worth every single penny. We enjoyed our trip. The guide became our friend in no time. He was very caring and knowledgeable and told us very intriguing and informative stories about Amish Country and Philadelphia. I would definitely put in a good word for Golden Bus and its tours to all my friends.

42 11

Great tour and great guide! We had a good group that got along well. If I were to pay for all of the services and trips individually, my trip would have cost me a lot more and would have taken a lot longer to comprehend. From the sites and cities we stayed in, the included meals, the wonderful people that made our tour group they all came together to make an unforgettable life adventure. Thanks everyone!

We departed from New York in a morning on this 2-day bus tour. We stopped at Amish Farm, Independence Hall, Princeton University, Liberty Bell and many others. The photos we took were really great especially at the Amish Farm because it's like we've stepped in a land of ancient era of people. I liked the hotel in which we stayed the night. It was a great tour and very exciting.

What an amazing company Golden Bus Tours is. They always ensure that everyone on the trip has fantastic time on the tour. They went above and beyond our expectations. Amish country and Washington are wonderful places to visit. Hope to travel again with Golden Bus Tours. They certainly impressed us.


Uns hat die Tour sehr gut gefallen. Chloe war eine tolle Reiseleiterin mit viel Wissen über Sehenswürdigkeiten und Geschichte. Sie hat versucht auf alle Wünsche einzugehen und war allzeit nett und freundlich. Die Tour war zweisprachig, alles wurde erst in Englisch, dann nochmal auf Chinesisch erzählt, teilweise etwas langwierig. Die Unterkunft war super, zum Frühstück konnte man unterwegs etwas einkaufen, denn Tag 2 startet zeitig. An jedem Tag kommen 10$ pro Person Trinkgeld hinzu. Die einzelnen Attraktionen konnte man einzeln oder als Paket mit Dinner und Lunch hinzubuchen. Wenn man nicht mit wollte konnte man selbstständig die Umgebung erkunden und hat eine feste Zeit und einen Treffpunkt zum zurück kommen erhalten. Es wäre super, wenn Verspätungen einzelner nicht ständig toleriert werden und die ganze Gruppe warten muss. Uns hat die Tour super gefallen. Wir haben viel gesehen, die Organisation war gut und wir würden nochmal buchen.
